IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC Chart on 29 September 2016 Issued at 5:22 pm EST Thursday on 29 September 2016 A strong cold front over northeast New South Wales extends over the Tasman Sea and Tasmania and to the significant low pressure system over southeast Australia. This is generating a large cloud band and thunderstorm activity over most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, southern South Australia and The Tasman Sea. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over far south South Australia. A broad cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen near the surface trough extending from the Top End to central Queensland. Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
